12 THE MORNING OKEGONIAN, TUESDAY, APRIL 15, 1902. CYPROMENE IN TROUBLE rORTLAXD-BOUXD SHIP puts into - THE FALKLAND ISLANDS. I October Ship at QueenKtovrn, After Slowest Paxinst' of the Season Red Rock Reinsurance. Both the Inbound 'and outbound ships of the Portland fleet are receiving some pretty rough handling from the elements this season, the latest victim of the gales being the British ship Cypromene. which sailed from Antwerp for Portland Jan uary 10. Merchants Exchange advices yesterday reported the vessel had put into the Falkland Islands March 25 with rigging damaged and having sustained other losses during heavy weather. The delay of this vessel Is especially annoy ing at this time, as she has aboard the rails for the Third-street road, and the Improvement of that street his been held up pending the arrival of the ship. The Cypromene Is usually a fast sailer, and had she escaped the gales which sent her Into the Falklands in distress, would have undoubtedly reached Portland about May 15. The German bark Nomia, which is the next vessel due to arrive at Port land, is nearly four months overdue, ac cording to the expectations of her own ers, who chartered her for January load ing. Her delay was caused by fire which forced her to put into a South African port to discharge cargo before proceed ing on her Journey. Three of the outbound fleet were re ported in trouble last week. The Falls of Halladale arrived out with her steer ing gear damaged and the crew on short rations, and a day or two later the Al bania reported out with sails missing, cargo shifted and some of it Jettisoned. TheDunbritton arrived at Flushing last Friday with sails and masts damaged, and a heavy list, due to the shifting of cargo in a heavy gale. A few of the ships which left here about the same time as the ones mentioned are still on the way, so It is hardly probable that the hard luck chapter of the 1S01-02 grain fleet has been completed. MISSED HER ORDERS. British. Ship Levernbank Swept Off Shore Before Belnff Ordered North. According to the San Francisco Bulle tin, the British ships Levernbank, which was supposed to have received orders off San Francisco Heads last Monday, Is still awaiting them. In a fair way to lose all she gained on her rattling passage from Santa Rosalia. The Bulletin says: "Most shipping people are under the Impression that the British ship Levern bank, which turned up in the ofllng on Monday evening last from Santa Rosalia for orders, received them and is on her way to Tacoma. She came back on Tues day evening, but there was no word for her. She stood off again and has not since been sighted. A stiff northwester came up that night, and the ship being in ballast, it is believed, could not stand up to it, and Is now away off to leeward of the port, and It may be a week before she Is heard of again. When she ap peared on Monday evening Captain Miller, of the pilot-bo'at Pathfinder, boarded her and promised to notify the agents of the vessel. The skipper of the Britisher told him that he would stand oft for the night and return again Tuesday evening. William Smallle, the agent of the Lev ernbank, instead of giving the orders to the pilot, arranged with Thomas Crow Jey, the launchman, ' to send them out in one of his boats. On Tuesday morning a four-masted vessel, light, and answering the description of the Levernbank, was sighted, and Crowley started his boat out. He reached the lightship to find that the craft was the British ship Lydgate from Tucapelo, bound in. By the time the launch got back here the pilot-boat had sailed again, "and without orders for the Levernbank, which she spoke that even ing and turned away. The deep-water skipper said he would stand In again yes terday evening, but he has not been seen since. The pilots when they see her will eend her on her way to Tacoma." REINSURANCE DECLINING. "Rate on the Red Rock Falls as the l'nesnKe Lengthens. The case of the British ship Red Rock, now bound from Victoria for Liverpool with salmon, presents a decidedly rare feiture. Inasmuch as reinsurance contin ues to drop as her passage lengthens. When the first report was received of salmon coming ashore bearing marks similar to that which made up the Red Rock.'e cargo, reinsurance on the craft shot up to GO per cent. From that point it has been steadily falling, until now, when the ship is nearly due on the other side, it has settled down to 18 per cent. The Red Rock Is a notoriously slow sailer und this is not the first time she has fig ured as a high-priced Insurance. In 1SSS) she was hopelessly overdue, when she reached Liverpool from New Caledonia. The underwriters had paid 92 per cent on the overdue, and not only that, she had been officially advertised, preparatory to being posted at Lloyd's as missing, when she arrived in port. Her sister ship, the Beacon Rock, was reinsured at 90 per cent as an overdue in 1901, and the same year the Castle Rock, of the same line, reached 90 per cent because of her tardy passage to the Royal Roads from Hong Kong. The Beacon Rock sailed from Port Plrie for Wellington, N. Z., a short voy age, and as the months pass'ed and she failed to arrive, the reinsurance mounted, and reached 90 per cent, when, to tha amazement of all, the vessel was reported from the west coast of South America having been Mown past New Zealand and across the Pacific LAST OCTOBER SHIP. British Bark Enst Indian Reaches , Falmouth After a Long Trip". The British ship East Indian arrived out at Falmouth Sunday, after a very long passage of 178 days from the Columbia- River, thus securing the unenviable distinction of making the longest passage of the season to date. The East Indian is the last'petober ship to arrive out, and there are' but two of the November ships on the way, the G. H. Wappaus, 143 days out, and the Carlo P., 148 days out. The French bark Amiral de Cornuller, one of the contestants in a three-cornered race from the Columbia, arrived out at Queenstown Saturday after a good pass age of 121 days. In company with the German bark Schwarzenbek, and British ship Cleomene, the Amiral de Cornuller crossed out of the river December 12. The German proved the speediest craft, mak ing the run to Queenstown In 113 days. The Cleomene, -which has usually made fast passages, has not yet been heard from. There are still half a dozen of the December ships which sailed ahead of this trio that have not yet reported out. The "Nelson and Lelyland Brothers, while sail ing with the November ships, can hard Jy be expected to arrive out with them, as both put into other ports in -distress, after leaving the Columbia. FOUR LOG RAFTS. "Westport Cradle Towed Up to'iStelln, "Washington, f or" Operation. Tho headquarters of the log-rafting in dustry on the Lower Columbia has been shifted from Westport, Or., to Stella, Wash., and four big rafts, will be put afloat from the latter port during the Summer. The steamer C. R. Spencer last week towed the big cradle recently con structed at Westport up to Stella, and it was about the largest task that Cap tain Spencer's new tugboat has yet tack led. The cradle is 728 feet long, by 60 feet, beam, and was drawing about five feet of water, the remaining 20 feet tow ering above the water to catch the 'wind, t jrw impoMiblo to move it asainet tfee tide, and it required three tides to get it to its destination. The cradle already at Stella is slighly smaller than the lat est production, but is over 500 feet long. Thrrf 1 Wr omflnd try nlllnr In fSnn Francisco, and some logging camps will work almost exclusively on piling this Summer In preference to saw logs. Wreckagre Picked Up. VICTORIA, B. C. April 14. The steamer Danube brought from the north a quan tity of wreckage picked up on Anlstazable Island. It Includes the panels of a soft wood door, painted a reddish color, and a salmon case and some labels, which have been identified as some shipped from Windsor cannery on both the ships Red Rock and Beechdale. It Is stated that the salmon was In such a place on the ship that It could not bo Jettisoned. The men who visited tho wreck of the Bristol say she Is in about 20 feet of water, lying on her beams. The one body found in the vicinity was so badly decomposed that It could not be Identified. Astoria Marine News. ASTORIA, Or., April 14. The repairs to the German ship Barmbek were com pleted by the Astoria Iron v Works , to day. She has been inspected by Lloyd's surveyor and found in a condition to go to sea. She will probably leave out tomorrow. The official measurement of the jraso line launch Harrington. built by O. P. Graham for Everdlng & Farrell, of Port land, was completed today. The dimen sions of the boat are: Length, 46.8 feet; beam, U.35 feet; depth. 4.2 feet; tonnage, 14 tons cross and 10 tons net. The Astorian to Rnn Again. ASTORIA, Or., April 14. The steamer Astorian Is now being refitted and in a few days will run regularly between As toria and Portland. It Is understood that she will cut the present freight and pas senger rates. The manifest of the schooner Novelty, which left out for San Francisco a few days ago, was filed in the Custom-House today. She carries a cargo of 720,000 'feet of lumber, loaded at the Knappton mill. Chilean Steamer Wrecked. NEW YORK, April 14. The steamship Cheribon, with 24,000 bags of coffee on board, bound for Panama, was wrecked Sunday off Point Redemios, five miles south of Acajutla, says a Herald dispatch from Guatemala City, Guatemala. The passengers and crew were saved, but the ship and cargo are a total loss. The Cher ibon was sailing under the Chilean flag. It was at Point Remcdlos that the Pan ama Mall steamship Pablas was wrecked several months ago. Domestic and Forelfrn Ports. ASTORIA, April 14. Sailed Steamer Vos burg. for Tillamook.

IL Flagx Describe Conditions in the Frozen; Land of Gold Poor v Mail Service. NOME, Alaska, Feb. 7. The last mall from the-states bore date of October 15, and -a community of 3000 Americans Is be ginning to wonder whether the Govern ment has utterly forgotten their exist ence. Nearly four months without hear ing from those we left behind us brings a realization of our isolation and neglected condition that Is very hard. If this were a necessary condition it could be borne without complaint, but it seems as If the postal authorities- could provide us with much better mail facilities. Certainly the citizens of Nome are heavily taxed. In fact, I do not think such an unjust sys tem of taxation exists In any country on earth. Nome Is an Incorporated city, and the Federal Government Is at no expense whatever for maintaining order here. Yet it compels every merchant engaging in business to pay a direct tax to the Fed eral Government, and, of course, the mu nicipal expenses police and fire depart ments, street paving, etc. must be met by taxation also. Nome's liquor taxes alone for this year up to date amount to over $50,000, and this is exclusive of the Internal revenue tax. Butchers, bakers, water-carriers, hotel-keepers. In fact, ev erybody except editors and publishers is taxed for the benefit of the' Federal Gov ernment, and it is very difficult to see the Justice of such a system. One-half of the tax levied upon Incor porated cities Is returned for school pur poses; but why should any Federal tax whatever other than that common to all parts of the country he levied upon th!s pioneer community? The Government should do everything within reason to encourage the settlement and develop ment of Alaska. There Is no community on earth that consumes so much, per capita, of the products of the United States, and consequently none whose de velopment is so important to the Pacific Coast. The people here want the best of everything and are willing to pay the price. They have sent out many millions of gold, and each year the output will in crease, for gold Is everywhere throughout this section, and science will solve the probem of Its extraction. The Federal tax upon occupations should be abolished, better mall facilities should be provided, and Aloska should be treated with at least the consideration that is shown Porto Rico and the Philippines. A Pltifnl Example of Snfferlnfr. I could fill The Oregonlan with truthful accounts of heroic suffering and death on the trail. The case that seems moat piti ful, however. Is that of George A. Car penter, a well-known newspaper corre spondent. Mr. Carpenter and two com panions named Hunter and Vent left Candle Creek on January 3. They were caught in a blizzard and went Into camp. The storm abated In a few days, and the Journey was resumed, but another bliz zard came up suddenly and they were un able to pitch their tent. They determined to make their way to a roadhouse 15 or 20 miles distant. Mr. Carpenter was un able to make the trip, and, lying down in the snow, told his companions he would take the chance of some one coming back. The dogs had previously given out and had been left behind. Mr. Carpenter was covered with snow and the two men pushed on. Two miles from tho road house Vent dropped from exhaustion. "When Hunter reached the roadhouse he wns In a dazed condition. Both mittens were on his right hand, and the bare left hand was frozen hard. He had tried to save his right hand, at the expense of his lefL A searching party Immediately started out. Vent was found without difficulty, but Carpenter was not located until after the lapse of 17 hours from the time he was left by his comrades. The dogs had followed and were crouching half-frozen where Carpenter lay beneath the snow.. The unfortunate man had thrust his hand through the snow because he thought he was smothering, and was unable to with draw IL Carpenter and his comrades were brought to Nome, and he has since been under the physician's care at the Golden Gate Hotel. He will lose his hands and feet, with the exception of a stump of a thumb and Anger on the left hand. During all his suffering he has shown extraordinary fortitude, and is expecting to resume his newspaper work at an early date. He is a member of the Knights of Pythias, and the K. P. Club here Is doing everything possible for his comfort. An entertainment will be given for "his benefit by the Eagles next week, so that when he Is able to leave his bed he will not be without means. Unique Social Life. Nome, socially considered. Is certainly a unique community. Society, as It is known in the states, with its classifica tions, does not exist here, and so long as men and women conduct themselves in a reasonably respectable manner no ques tions are asked as to their antecedents. Here, more than elsewhere, the fraternal orders and the churches are the main social factors, and' they all seem "bent upon getting as much enjoyment as pos sible out of a six months' Arctlo "Winter. "With the exception of the Eagles and the Arctic Brotherhood there are no regu larly constituted lodges of any of the well-known fraternal orders in Alaska, but as a substitute clubs have been formed where Masons, Knights of Pythias, Odd Fellows etc, keep alive the fraternal ties. This season each of these -orders has given either an entertainment or a ball, and in each Instance the ball has been packed to its full capacity. Possibly the largest gathering was on the occasion of the ball given by the Knights of Pythias. The building used was the Golden Gate Hall, with a clear floor space of 125x40 feet, 17 side boxes and a stage for the orchestra of nine pieces. The attendances was over GOO, and 200 couples took part in the grand march. The hall was brilliantly Illum inated with electricity, and every box was handsomely deoorated. The next week the Knights of Pythias gave a German smoker for -which 400 Invitations were issued. The costumes worn at these entertain ments vary from the plainest and most Inexpensive to those that cost hundreds of dollars and are set off with Jewels worth thousands; but the dress coat is conspicuous by its scarcity, and decol lete costumes are Infrequent. The money realized from these entertainments is de voted mainly to charity of the best and most unobtrusive kind. '"Warning; to Goldaeekers. As this letter will reach you about the opening of navigation, I wish to repeat my warning to working men not to come to Nome unless they have funds to pay their expenses while here and their fare home at the close of the season. This Is 'the greatest placer mining camp on earth, but it takes capital to work claims where bedrock is SO to 75 feet from the surface. Recent Investigations have proved that gold is scattered everywhere throughout the tundra, but it might as well be in the bottom of the sea, so far as a poor man's chance of getting It goes. The tundra, as the term Is used here, ex tends from the beach to the foothills, and is composed of heavy black soil, covered with stunted vegetation and moss. It never thaws more than three or four feet, and to remove It from the bedrock will be an immense labor. So far as laboring men are concerned, therefore, there is nothing here for them but day wages, and they can probably do quite as well by staying at home. During the "Winter the people of Nome have been compelled to support quite a number of Improvident or unfortunate people, as the Government refuses to do anything for the destitute who flock to jthls city from the outside camps. A charity ball realized about 51200 Xor this purpose, and, with the good work of the churches and the fraternal orders, no worthy person whose wants were known has been allowed to suffer for the necessaries of life. The postal Inspector at St. Michael has Informed the public here that letters containing newspaper clippings from tho outside will not be forwarded to their destination in Alaska. As the people here are dependent upon these clippings for their news of the world, this order has caused considerable, bad feeling here. B. H. FLAGG. PRICE IS INCREASED. O. R. & X.

Elliott, postmaster and general merchant at Powell's Valley, has begun erection of a new store, which will be the largest building of its kind in Eastern Multnomah County. It will be 70x54 feet on the ground with a celling 20 feet In the clear. The store will be divided into two parts; the larger, 36 feet wide, will be used for merchandise and the post office, while the other, IS feet, will be a feed warehouse. The building will have a concrete foundation and a cement base ment. It will face the Powell's Valley road on a sightly location. The town Is a flourishing little place, its main sup port being the well-to-do farmers near by and the tie-hauling Industry from the sawmills beyond. Arbor Day Observed. ' Arbor day was generally observed at all the public schools of this district. Trees were planted with appropriate ex ercises. At this place the front of the schoolyard was made Into a lawn with a mound of rose trees in the center. At Beaver School a mountain ash was plant ed and named In honor of our late mar tyred President, "William McKlnley. Be neath the roots of the tree a bottle was buried containing the names of the school board, C. Conrad, J. H. "Wilson and "W. S. "Wood; clerk, John Stafford; teachers. Miss Cora Massey, principal, and Miss Lulu Massey, primary, together with a brief history of the school. Appropri ate exercises were held In connection with the planting of the tree and the bot tle. More Rond "Work. Supervisor Cleveland has teams and men at work graveling the two roads leading eastward. A new bridge is being built across the deep gulch crossing the Powell's Valley road In town. Lumber and work for the structure was donated by property-owners. Other road Improve ments will commence in a short time, so as to get the thoroughfares in best shape before haying and harvesting commences. Brief Notes.

New York Times. "What Is thl3 "feel of the road" to which the railway men testifying in the tunnel acefdent investigation refer bo of ten? ' To them, apparently, it is something at once real and familiar something that gives them, information quite apart from the regular signals, and yet both trust worthy and trusted. One engineer said that he would not take a passenger train through the tun nel until he had made the passage an un mentioned number of times with the re sponsibility for safety resting upon some body else, but -with "the feel of the road" once acquired, he would apparently have little fear, however thick the smoke, steam and fog might be. So far as a lay man can guess at the mysterious phrase, it hints that after an engineer has passed over a given piece of track repeatedly Its minute irregularities, consciously or un consciously noticed, inform him of his position, even when he can see no sig nals, but memory of the strange powers credited by Mr. Clemens to the old-time pilots on the Mississippi hints that there may be something more to "the feel of the road" than the Interpretation of slight jars and lurches. Of course, tho problem thus presented Is less difficult, and therefore less interest ing, than the one to be found when a great manufacturer of electric apparatus condemns the use of electricity for trac tion purposes, but still It has its charms, and the lovers of the mystical ought to get to work.
